A 10 10 0 R1​

The two-year program listed below is designed to meet the requirements for an Associate of Arts transfer degree from GTCC and prepare a student for obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Religion at University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Appalachian State University, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, or Guilford College (there is no Religion major at North Carolina A & T State University). University of North Carolina Wilmington offers a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and Religion.

However, students from GTCC seeking a baccalaureate degree may also transfer to other institutions. These institutions may require different courses within the various areas of General Education. Students interested in transferring to a four-year college or university after GTCC should consult with the institution they will be attending, their faculty advisor, and/or the GTCC Student Success Center.

Upon successful completion of this degree, graduates will be able to:

  • ​Evaluate sources to acquire new information in the field of religion.
  • Analyze academic theories used in the study of Religion.
  • Compare objective and subjective beliefs as they are encountered in the practice of religion.
